Sweeney by Harold G. Bun-ell, of the engineering firm of Bun-ell and Wynn. Mayor Sweeney said the firm has been employed by the city to survey the smoke problem and make recommendations to the Mayor and Council in connection with proposed ordinances for smoke control. The Mayor said Mr. Burreli reported that not only is high volatile coal being used in various industrial establishments, but in churches and homes here. No action will be taken by the council until reports have been completed. The ice cap on Greenland is more than a mile and a half thick. PIMPLES Disappeared Overnight Blacktwads too.
